cp barrels are good, not to expensive. any 9v should work. so yeah a duracell should be fine

1) Depending on budget, a barrel kit is going to be your best option.

2) 12" or 14", no more, no less. Any less, the ball isn't going to get to speed, any longer, it's going to start to slow down.

3) Batteries are batteries, a good rechargeable one is ALWAYS worth it!

i find the freak set to be the best.....it will allow you to have many different bore sizes....as far as batteries go it really doesnt matter, a rechargeable lithium ion battery would ideal

Alright, here's the whole thing behind the barrel length's, my 12/14 suggestion is based on the fact that you'll be able to have a preferred operating PSI. you can get your FPS up to 300 with a short barrel, but you're going to need to crank your PSI up to get it to accelerate in the shorter distance, alas, you'll be EATING air. Same-ish with a longer barrel. Higher operating PSI more impact on the ball, more air consumption = chance for more ball breaks, more trips to the air station/chance to run out in the middle of the big game. Am I making sense? ha


As far as barrel kits go,

The freak is a great barrel kit, dang good price too.

If you don't to deal with a kit, and just want a single barrel, I'd recommend a DYE ultralight, a J&J ceramic, or a Stiffi. All being superlight and their manufacturing tolerances are tight.

dye UL and j j are both good....ive done away w/ the freak kit....ive got a furious barrel lotus front and two backs....and barrel length depends on which play you do/....woods? speedball? and what position? i play mid/back and use a 14" theres a bunch of vs threads you can read over which many people have put their opinions in

J&J is good for a Budget barrel, But the Ultralite is a much better product. Also, if down the road you decide to sell your equipment, an Ultralite will hold it's value better than The J&J.

As to the Battery, you should always use a high quality battery if possible, like Energizer or Duracell. Cheap batteries have been known to cause problems in electronic markers.

Id go with that j&j barrel if your on a budget, ive had one before a long time ago and it was ball on ball accurate, plus im not sure what the insides made of (someone help me out here) its self cleaning, as in u break a ball in there it helps the next shot clean it out

i have a video of it on an ion that was years ago tho so idk if ill be able to find it but if i do ill post it

yup np i really dont think im gonna find it since the site i posted it on is now a porn site , but it shot a stream each ball on top of eachother, i cant really say much about the ultralite since ive barely used one but all i know is i paid 35 bucks for that barrel and for that price u cant go wrong, and its ceramic and teflon lining the inside it really helps clean it out with just shooting another ball
